About The Vineyards California Armenian Home

The not-for-profit corporation, the California Armenian Home was established in 1952 by the local Armenian community, who generously donated 40-acres of land in Fresno, California’s southeast countryside, the building, and the funds to furnish a continuing care retirement community. Today, over 65 years later, the renowned California Armenian Home offers both short and long-term, 24-hour skilled nursing, rehabilitation and assisted living residences, and takes most insurance programs.

On January 2, 2018, The Vineyards expansion of the California Armenian Home, Fresno County’s largest privately funded $42 million senior lifestyle community, opened for residents and offers private pay, month-to-month rents for resort-style independent living villas and apartments, assisted living and memory care apartments, plus a host of hospitality amenities including multiple dining establishments, recreation, fitness and daily needs services.

The Vineyards California Armenian Home welcomes senior residents of any national origin and includes dedicated and caring professional staff and volunteers.
